We’ve had beautiful weather here, so Easter was perfect. The kids colored eggs, got giant filled baskets, had an Easter egg hunt, and a grandparent visit. A good day for them.
Last year I came up with a color coded Easter egg hunt and continued it this year at their request. These two are obsessed with fairness and boy can they fight. The hunt would have been ruined had I not intervened with this over protective, meddling, helicopter parenting, coddling, somewhat ridiculous solution.
Milo only finds/gets the blue and green eggs and Keely only gets the pink and purple eggs. That way they are not screeching and tackling each other whenever an egg is spotted. Also, they will get the same number of eggs, so no one feels like a big ‘ole hunting loser with sad basket of 2 eggs while the bigger kid has 84,000 and is laughing maniacally at their wonderful luck. It works beautifully and makes for a much more feel good time. Yay! Judge me if you must, but we will continue this tradition for.evaaaah.
